With Sheen seeking treatment, CBS may lose eight episodes of Two and A Half Men's 24-episode season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. To fill in the gap, the network will use the additional episodes ordered of Mike and Molly and Rules of Engagement.

A rep for CBS issued the following statement:

    "Due to Charlie Sheen’s decision to enter a rehabilitation center, CBS, Warner Bros. Television and executive producer Chuck Lorre are placing “Two and a Half Men” on production hiatus. We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being, and support his decision."

Stan Rosenfield tells THR: "I can say that all of us who know Charlie care about him very much. We will support him in any we can in this journey."
